I know that detdrbuzzard, and MiWinger51 have made reservations. I don't know if any of the others that have posted here have made reservations. I'm from Columbus, Oh along with The Grinch.

Thanks for the info! I have private messaged MiWinger51 through this site but I have not heard from him. I will give detdrbuzzard a try.

Looking forward to visiting the 'Gathering'. Am GWRRA Chapter Director in Maggie Valley area. Have always referenced Goldwing Docs for answers for long time. Learned how to change timing belts on 1985 Aspencade from video.

If I may be of assistance while in our area, please let me know, jecope@charter.net. Also the NC GWRRA 'Wings Over Smokies' rally is Sept. September 26-28 at Haywood County Fairgrounds, 758 Crabtree Rd, Waynesville, NC 2878. Fairgrounds is about 2-1/2 miles from Gathering.

Joined this site last Feb. and am glad I did. Just wanted to say thanks for all the good info. Was on a Harley Softail but when we decided to go to a trike the gl1800 was the best decision. Have a csc kit on it. What a dream. Will be attending the gathering in Sept. so look forward to meeting some of you.
Thanks Again!

Brian and I have talked about having T-shirts made for those who are interested. We would need a certain number to make them come in at a reasonable price. If you are interested let it be known.
Looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Less than 2 months to go!!!

Here is the latest on T-shirts. I have talked to a supplier near me who makes screen printed shirts. The shirts will be a 50% cotton 50% polyester blend with moisture wicking properties. I have decided that since the Gathering will be in North Carolina that the shirts will be Carolina Blue. They will be screen printed with a picture of a Goldwing,https://img.clipartimage.com/honda-moto ... 46_745.jpg, and will be printed as follows:
3rd Annual
GoldWingDocs Gathering
Maggie Valley N.C.
2019

The cost of the shirts is yet to be determined as it will be based upon the number of shirts that we have made. I am hoping to get to 2 dozen or more. I hope to have the final artwork completed and ready for you guys to view by the middle of next week. The company is awaiting the selection of a color and I will let them know my choice on Monday. At that time they will complete and submit their design to me for approval.
As soon as I make the post with the design, I will make a list of those who have expressed a desire to have a shirt made. there will be a column for number of shirts and size. If you have already posted a request and size I will put you on that post. You will not be added if you have not stated a size.

OK, I've had a room booked for months and looking forward to riding with y'all again this year. Will be leaving home (near Columbus, OH) on Monday the 9th and taking the scenic to Maggie Valley, likely towards a run on the Back of the Dragon and say hello to friends in that area. Planning to be at the hotel sometime Wednesday. Convinced my SO to make the trip this year even though her wheels are Yamaha. Everybody stay safe!
